Vad du kommer att göra

My experience will start with meeting our guests, then we will start our tour of the oldest shisha cafe (Khabni) and drinking hibiscus tea or cardamom tea in that place with local people. I will tell us the story of this cafe, and how the locals spend their time as friends in this place.

then we will walk to Souq al Khodra - the first market established in Aqaba- The story of Souq al Khodra will be unveiled as I show you shops of meats, vegetables and other local shops there. I will show how simple farmers sell herbs in simple carts, you will get a chance to taste some of these herbs if you wish.

After that, we will go to the spice store, where we will see how fresh spices are prepared for some of the original Jordanian dishes, here you will know that every city in Jordan has its own character using these spices.
you will be helped if you want to buy fresh spices, coffee or dates, and extra things such as Jordan scarf, souvenir, and grocery gifts, authentic cookies and dessert.

Then we will go to (Fish Market), where our guests will get to know the story of the local fishermen in Aqaba and their fishing methods, and how the fish wealth has been affected over time. We will share the taste of fresh fish with these fishermen.
After the tour, I would like to give you some locals tips for traveling around Aqaba

Hello, my name is Abed, I'm local from Aqaba. I'm interested to meet new people and talking about Jordan culture and try with my guest's local food and answer Jordan traveler questions about it.
I always like to give some local tips to move around or to do things in Aqaba as I have a great knowledge of this.
I have a strong faith in the significance of the cultural exchange, my goal is promoting non-touristic destinations with a unique story to help local communities benefit from tourism in Jordan, and developing the new alternative Jordanian tourism map.
I started my experience personally since the beginning of 2018 and now I want to transfer it to Airbnb's world.

Abed is the most helpful, kind and nice host who we have ever had! We booked a culture tour with Abed and we definetely highly recommended it! We went around the local markets and he made sure that if we want to buy something, will take it for the real price. He also showed us the town and took us to a BBQ where we ate very delicious fish! Thank you Abed!

Basically, you are paying almost €20 for a hibiscus tea and for a 90 minute walk-about that you could absolutely do on your own. It did not feel like Abed was adding much information to our little walk, which is basically just a tour of tourist-trinket shops owned by his friends selling all the same tired and over-priced stuff you can find literally anywhere else, ending at a low quality food stall also run by a friend of his, where you have to pay again. It did not feel like we got a local experience or our money's worth, which was disappointing, since he had advertised his tour as giving access to hidden gems in the city. Hopefully, he will take this as a chance to improve the experience he is offering to include some more actual information or lower the price to a more reasonable level. While I feel very pressured to write a positive review, I do not feel that I can do that in good conscience. Save some money and just walk a loop on your own. You won't miss anything.

Abed is the best host and guide in Aqaba. He is very kind, communicative, well informed, hospitabel, inetegent and nice person with great English language. If you want to feel Jordan like your home and to touch to the local cultures and locals inside, I highly recommend you this trip. You will enjoy the atmosphere of the first Aqaba's coffee in a small street, where locals loves to chill with shisha, Arabic coffee made in sand and unique hibiscus tea. An other interesting experience is the perfume shop full with hand made natural perfume oils. Abed will negotiates for you the best prices ever. So do not hesitate to join in with Abed! You will be fascinated!

We had a tour in Aqaba with Abed and his friend and we very much enjoyed the tour. The tour was well organised but at the same time the guide was listening our preferances and did some changes according to that as well. Abed and his friend did explain a lot and we really felt free to ask any kind of questions..this tour gave us a very good overview how people actually living in Aqaba. Also they did many jokes so we had a lot of fun :).

Die Führung war okay, wir sind einmal quer durch Aqaba gegangen, dann haben wir Fisch gegessen in einem kleinen Fischladen und danach haben wir uns die Basare angeschaut.
